New Prototype BKBT Chest Armor

    New Prototype BKBT Chest Armor

    Just thought I would post some pics of what I have been working on. These have been mostly finished for awhile except for the final smoothing. I still ned to cut chest slots in the left breast plate but I am going to mold & cast it as is so the filler doesn't break away. Constructive criticism is welcome.

    Wow, that looks perfect! The chest pieces have that Jango curve and look dead on.

    Re: New Prototype BKBT Chest Armor

    Yes Yes Yes, I need this to match my BKBT helmet!!! When's it coming out & how much will it cost?

    Re: New Prototype BKBT Chest Armor

    I'll probably do a small LIMITED run of these but it won't be for awhile yet. I still need to copy the left breast plate so I can cut slots in it (it will be next to impossible to cut them cleanly in the prototype). There is some more final smoothing to do as well. I also need to make up a shoulder bell so I can have a complete upper armor set. There are no plans to do a backplate as these are so large that they are VERY expensive to ship. I am hoping to get some of this ready by Christmas.

    I believe that the measurements are correct, in the vertical cut I agree. But I continue believing that they are very good. (The PIC is from Portugal Expo)
